The second step concerns all types of skin. It may seem simple to achieve. Yet many people find it difficult to simply hydrate themselves! Here are some techniques to achieve this.



If you want to have beautiful skin in any season, you must first moisturize it from the inside. To avoid dehydration, it is recommended to drink at least 1.5 liters a day. This basic need can be met by regular intake of water-based drinks such as herbal teas, green tea, lemon or herbal-flavored water. A balanced diet rich in fruits and vegetables also contributes to this internal hydration mechanism.

Hydrate the skin

In addition, the need for specific dermocosmetic treatments for black skin is greater in the temperate climate. Indeed, by adapting the black skin has a stronger tendency to dehydration with excessive secretion of sebum. Composed of lipids, sebum contributes, at the base, to the good maintenance of hydration of the skin, and protects it from the external aggressions. In overproduction, the epidermis has a shiny appearance associated with an irregular skin texture, dilated pores, blackheads and microcysts due to an accumulation of sebum in the pores.

Take care of the external moisture of your skin daily. Apply a moisturizer rich in active elements, non-comedogenic. The choice of a skincare adapted to your skin type will provide, in addition to moisturizing active ingredients, specific elements to your problem. Depending on your purpose, you want:

  •          Eliminate excess sebum and associated discomfort for combination or oily skin
  •          Soothe your skin by restoring its hydrolipidic film if your skin is dry.
  •          Regain firmness, suppleness, and radiance in the case of marked, tired, or dull skin.

For long-term effectiveness, apply your moisturizer in the morning and / or evening on the entire face, neck and décolleté perfectly cleaned. Integrate the use of your facial before applying makeup.

Some specific needs, such as hyperpigmentation spots for example, can be treated with a stain-resistant serum to apply before moisturizing. Remember also to complete this routine with a sunscreen to prevent the appearance of additional spots, and ensure uniformity of your complexion.

Day after day, you thus preserve the cellular renewal of your epidermis. Indeed, hydration naturally activates the removal of dead cells. To ensure the effectiveness of this natural mechanism and ensure a refined skin texture, we deliver the secrets of a beautiful black skin in this last step.

Despite conventional wisdom, black skin, more sensitive than white skin, can benefit from a regular exfoliation to accelerate the process of repair of the epidermis.

Its action will be more effective in removing dead cells than a mechanical scrub - horsehair glove type - and less abrasive.
